Elliott's Hardware published a letter in a Dallas newspaper in which they offered George W. Bush a part-time job as one of their store greeters. Some of the job benefits included parking for George W. Bush's security detail and an employee discount.
The letter described George Bush as being perfect for the job as he had excellent "people skills" and would fit right in with other geriatrics employed by Elliott's. The letter also said the work would be "much less stressful" than his previous job.
Bush actually went to the store and told the store manager that he was "looking for a job." Wearing a name tag labeled "W", Mr. Bush spent a hour at the store talking to customers while shopping but ultimately decided to reject the store's offer.
